To put it out there, the only way David and Corinne could manage to scrape through into the next round would be for Cathy and Anna to either burn down the kitchen or offer a plate of salmonella.
They came close with the salmonella.
But, knowing these two as much as we have been able to, Cathy and Anna will not settle for anything less than perfection. There’s the house set upon acres of green land and fabulous gardens in country NSW, there’s posh country style home decorating, there’s the first class menu perfect for the Country Manor (also the name of their instant restaurant) – it’s all very Hyacinth Bucket in Keeping up Appearences
Best Dish of the Night: When Kate Miller-Heidke look-a-like Carly spoke about agreeing with Kelly’s comments on the entree and calling her Chloe. To be fair, both Kelly and Chloe are so interchangeable that it does become difficult to actually tell one from the other. The resulting (and totally acceptable mishap) resulted in the following face…
The Food Overall: While not for me, Cathy and Anna proved themselves worthy of nabbing the top spot on the ladder. The presentation was flawless, all meals came out on time and David was left to comment on how Cathy and Anna didn’t actually cook anything. Entree of Seared scotch fillet with eggplant caviar was cooked so rare it looked like a cow on a plate to me. It was rare and slightly lacking in seasoning. Main consisted of even rarer lamb (possibly seething in Salmonella) loin with potato galette and desert (the one meal I would have devoured) featured home made apple pies.
The Final Result: Australia cheers with glee as David and Corinne go sailing off into the distance playing Enya’s Onrioco Flow “Sail away, sail away, sail away!” To be fair, these two are the only couple who have managed to steal the bitch-light off Chloe and Kelly who managed to make round one all about themelves.
Up Next: All couples are reunited and are presented with a big red MKR truck! But what’s in the truck? According to my boyfriend, the truck is filled with monkeys all trained as Michelin Star chefs – it’s a cooking battle for control of the earth!
